The forum will bring together city, district and regional councils and Economic Development Agencies from the central North Island, along with key contributors from New Zealand government agencies. The focus will be on the practical ways that we can work together for greater impact.
Diplomatic representatives are also invited to the forum to gain insight into engagement with New Zealand regions, and to discuss partnership opportunities.
The forum will conclude with a reception for the Palmerston North Festival of Cultures, which all delegates are invited to join. We also encourage you to stay overnight and attend the city's World Food, Craft & Music Fair on Saturday 24 March.
Due to the popularity of the Festival of Cultures, we encourage attendees to book travel and accommodation as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. If you need any assistance, please contact the Palmerston North City i-SITE.
